该项目是一个包含酒店、电影院和零售店的混合用途建筑，设计师使用另类的当代语言回应场地的真实条件。建筑如同图腾巨石一般矗立在两街的交汇处，成为了一个灵活的元素。该设计将建筑与现有的街道融为一体，同时配合公共区域的行人流。Old Street和Great Eastern Street的交汇处是东伦敦的标志性地带。古老的Roman Street则横穿过“Silicon Roundabout”（也被称为硅谷环岛或城市道路交叉口）后向西逐渐加宽，并延伸到Haggerston站，与Shoreditchqu区相接。整个交汇点不仅体现了城市的肌理形态，同时依靠创意和艺术的兴起和伦敦金融城的影响，成为旧工业区的发展的催化剂。
▼位于两街交汇处的巨大建筑， huge building at the intersection of two streets
The proposal for this mixed-used building including hotel, cinema, and retail explores a formal response to the site conditions with an alternative contemporary language. Against the monolithic presence of a totem that divides the paths in two, the building becomes a flexible element that blends with the perspective of the resulting streets while respects the pedestrian flow of the public area.The intersection of Old Street and Great Eastern Street is an iconic landmark in East London. The ancient Roman street widens on the western side after crossing what is being called the Silicon Roundabout, the intersection of City Road, and opens the doors of Shoreditch at Haggerston.This junction is not only significant from the morphology of the urban fabric but also for becoming a regeneration catalyst in this old industrial area influenced by the City of London that has experienced an important creative and artistic boom.

The building becomes a prow that enhances the angle of the junction responding to the urban views, but steps back at ground level to considerate and emphasize the cycling and pedestrian flow that crosses perpendicularly. The overlay of these two urban circulations shapes and defines the building form creating an iconic element, distinctive but not monumental, that is subtle seen from the adjacent streets.The twisted facades of the building contrast with a regular arrangement of openings, creating a language that translates into the interior. An internal courtyard creates a discreet and enigmatic breach that becomes a secondary access point, bringing light into the enclosure and widening at the bottom to host the drop-off area.

The hotel rooms are located around an internal atrium that concentrates the vertical circulation of the building while the cinema and retail occupy the rear of the courtyard, next to the party wall.The structural system responds to the geometry of the twisted facade, made of ruled surfaces along arches and straight lines. The parametric design of the shell is compensated with a rational layout, allowing a consistent distribution of rooms and openings.
